Amaretto Colada

Day 160

Amaretto Colada
4 shots out of 5

It's hot.  It's Tuesday.  The little one had a set of immunizations yesterday........and she's cranky.  So is mom.  That must mean it's time for tonight's cocktail!  No, it definitely means that!!

I gave tonight's cocktail 4 shots out of 5.  I have had this one pinned on my Pinterest board for quite some time now.  Tonight was the night to make it!  My pin led me here.  I blended up this cocktail and had everything except for the whipping cream so I substituted it with the closest thing I had, milk.  I can absolutely taste the amaretto the most in this cocktail (hence the name).  It's a little overpowering in some sips......then in other sips it gets a little better and I taste more of the cream of coconut.  Regardless, this is a pretty enjoyable cocktail.

Here is the recipe for an Amaretto Colada:

  • 1 oz amaretto
  • 1 1/2 oz light rum
  • 3 pineapple juice
  • 1 oz cream of coconut
  • 1 tsp whipping cream (I used milk)
In a blender add 1 cup of ice, and all ingredients above.  Blend it up until all of the ice is gone.  Pour it into a hurricane glass.  You can top it off with whipped cream and a cherry like I did, or not.

Here is a photo of the end result:

I absolutely do enjoy blended cocktail on warm nights.....or sort of warm nights.......even cold ones will do!
